Osmotic regulation

How do mineral salts contribute in the osmotic regulation?




Osmotic pressure based on the number of particles dissolved in the solution and not on the nature of these particles. Mineral salts, proteins, glucose, and urea are the major regulating particles for the osmolarity of an organism. Such molecules all along with other particles inside and outside the cell produce the bigger or smaller osmotic gradient among the intracellular and the extracellular space.
